Went here after reading many reviews as we wanted to experience the suckling pig tradition of this area.Well,we might well go back to being vegetarian after this.Didn't enjoy that aspect of the dinner at all. The bottled water;house wine and avocado salad were great.No complaints and enjoyable. The roasted asparagus and zucchini were terribly gritty,which totally detracted from what could... More

We ate the traditional suckling pig and lamb which I loved but my wife was a little disappointed. The service could not have been better. As good as any first class US restaurant for a reasonable price.

This well known restaurant never fails to please. I have been coming here for over 30 years and nothing has changed and nothing needs to change. Good traditional Segovian cuisine, served smartly according to local culture. Excellent wine from the owner's vineyard. What could be better? Those who might complain about not getting their 'meat and two veg' should stay... More

We went for the tasting menu at €50 drinks included! Food was absolutely delicious and plenty of it, good way to go with it. The sucking pig was outstanding! The service was top... More

Food lived up to its reputation. Both the sucking pig and lamb were excellent, along with the Sangria!

So far on our tour of Spain and Portugal it has been the best meal we've had. I had the roast pig and my wife had the fillet of sole in a lemon paprika sauce. The show of sectioning the pig is fun to watch and our wonderful waiter Luis asked my wife if she would like her fillet deboned... More

We had the goat cheese, avocado salad which was interesting and quite good. One of us had the pork loin bits, which were ok but salty. Two of us split the cochinello. There wasn't much of it and nothing came with it. The house Ribera was very good. I would suggest a different place for a more robust dinner, or... More

We traveled from Madrid to Segovia for the day. Our tour guide recommended Jose Maria as the best restaurant in Segovia. It was delicious and one of the top restaurants to eat roasted piglet which is a must do in Spain. There was a lively bar area, family feel table area and a quiet more formal dining area in the...
